I put together a gaming pc in Nov. 2007 and I'd like to hear opinions on its value. Here are the specs:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E6850 @ 3.00GHz (2 CPUs)
Memory: OCZ Platinum Revision 2GB
Hard Drive: Seagate 1TB SATA
Video Card: eVGA 8800GT KO
Monitor: Acer AL2002W 20'' Widescreen
Sound Card: Realtek HD Audio output
Operating System: Windows 7
Motherboard: Asus P5N-E SLI
Computer Case: Xion ONYX [Black w/ Blue LEDS]

How much do you think this system might sell for today? Thanks!

Things working FOR you: 3GHz, 1TB HD, 20" monitor, cool looking case (?) and a Windows 7 license.

Things working AGAINST you: The LGA775 platform has very little bang-for-the-buck upgrades. 2GB of memory. "Dated" video card. Small power supply ??

IMHO your target audience is someone that "just needs a computer that works" and you should expect to MAYBE get enough from it to cover the cost of a new CPU+MB if you are planning a new build. Few knowledgeable people would buy a similar machine to be upgraded for gaming or processing efforts. Prices are subjective so not going to gustimate there... Good luck!

Thanks man. I know it's hard to tell, but if you had to guess at a price what would you say?

You MIGHT get $300~$350 for it from someone who does not know any better. Pretty sure it would sell at $250 quickly with the monitor.
